Prayer for Summer morning – pulled from the Littlest Druid blog because I felt like it

May I greet this Summer morning
With a cheerful face and loving grace,
Grace to my heart
Grace to my hands
Grace to my spirit.
Blessings to the fellow beings
I meet on my path
Keep my temper and patience this day
From morning light to fall of night

I ask protection for my spirit
From the nine summer flowers
Cheer of nasturtiums
Grace of a poppy
Strength of a sunflower
Uprightness of the iris
Flexibility of a morning glory
Permanence of a bouganvilla
Playfulness of a Johnny-jump-up
Peace of the lily
Determination of lotus
Nine flowers to guide me through the garden of light
Nine flowers to cheer me till night time.
